School Description

Before attending Kingfisher, pupils have often had prolonged periods out of education and negative experiences of school. In all subjects and activities, staff have high expectations of pupils. They ensure that they understand pupils’ needs and learning styles, and then tailor learning carefully to meet them. This successfully re-engages pupils in education and helps them to achieve well academically. Staff also understand pupils’ social, emotional and mental health needs. They support pupils exceptionally well to help them manage their feelings and emotions. The sensory room, mentors and Ginny and Rocco, the school dogs, all contribute to the school’s highly effective pastoral support. Over time, pupils’ behaviour improves significantly. Staff spot quickly when pupils’ emotions begin to change. They intervene swiftly to help pupils to calm themselves. This means that any potential issues, including any bullying, are minimised and pupils can continue learning in a calm environment. Pupils appreciate the care and support that staff give them and feel safe and secure in school. They also appreciate the wider opportunities the school provides, such as trips to Barry Island, residential visits and the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award activities. The wider curriculum experiences enhance pupils’ enjoyment of, and engagement in, school.
